1. Frank, can you try to set up a temporary redirect for this, and I'll nudge the Kenai team again on doing the permanent one?
2. It will be visible in the CMS and project catalog. I just added the jsrs project as a subproject to jcp, and made jcp_pmo the owner. Any new JSR that comes in should go there, and I'll sort through the older ones to let you know which I think should be archived and which should be moved into jsrs, (or another subproject if it's deemed necessary).
That not found error is a really weird bug. I saw this with a JUG project last week too. I just filed this with Kenai - http://kenai.com/jira/browse/KENAI-2892
3. Frank, can you give an ETA to update this?
4. I'll look into it a little more. Private projects shouldn't appear. I think some of them are that bug 2892 I just filed. I'll add more notes and/or file a different bug if it looks like a different issue.
We made the decision to go with a Not Found error for private projects because the access denied error gives a hacker a goal. The old Java.net site behaved this way as well.
The number is smaller - Frank is working on data cleanup across the site. Right now that list shows every project that was connected with JSR on the old site, but only a few of those were migrated, so the list will go to more 404s.
Frank, is there an ETA for that project?
The reason for repurposing this community is more political than practical - if we were to launch a new, separate JCP community, you'd have campaign for it, and get a vote from the other community leaders. It would be time consuming and I don't know how that would go - a lot of them are very down on Oracle (and they were upset with Sun too, this isn't a new dynamic) and would vote against another Oracle sponsored community (even if it is the JCP) just to be a pain. In the past they have voted down other Sun or Oracle sponsored projects, and when Sun essentially forced us to violate our own charter and stand them up anyway, it got really ugly.
Renaming the old community lets us skirt that process. Slightly slimy on my part? Yes. Corporate reality? That too.
5. If you own both, yes. If not it'll have to be done by me or Tonya for the next couple of months. Frank is working on building out the automated process that will let you do it yourself. We are aiming to launch that at J1 in October.
